Malteasers cupcakes,mmmmmmmmmmm - avert your eyes if your weight watching!!!!

Over on UKs there was a cupcake swap hosted by Tcake, she sent me the most fabby recipe in the world for Malteaser cupcakes, they are soooooooooo yummy. Heres the recipe:

For the cakes:

150g soft light brown sugar
100g caster sugar
175ml milk
15g butter
2tablespoons horlicks
175g plain flour
25g sieved cocoa
1teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

For the icing
250g icing sugar
1 teaspoon cocoa
45g horlicks
125g softened butter
2 tablespoons boiling water
2x37g bags of malteasers

Preheat the oven to 170c/gas mark 4

Whisk together the sugar and the eggs.

Heat the milk, butter and horlicks powder in a pan until the butter melts and it is hot but not boiling.

When the sugar and eggs are light and frothy, beat in the hot horlicks mixture and then fold in the flour, cocoa, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda.

Divides the mixture between the cupcakes and bake in the oven for about 15 minutes, by which time the cakes should have risen and will spring back when pressed gently (the mixture will be quite wet!)

Sieve the icing sugar, cocoa and horlicks into a bowl. Add the butter and mix, then add the hot water.

Swirl the topping onto the top of the cakes, sprinkle with crushed malteasers and then add one malteaser to the top of each cake!

Eat and enjoy!
